Luke 14:27-35 (KJV)
 And whosoever doth not bear his cross,
and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
 For which of you, intending to build
a tower, sitteth not down first, and
counteth the cost, whether he have
sufficient to finish it?
 Lest haply, after he hath laid the
foundation, and is not able to finish it,
all that behold it begin to mock him,
 Saying, This man began to build,
and was not able to finish.
 Or what king, going to make war
against another king, sitteth not down
first, and consulteth whether he be
able with ten thousand to meet him that
cometh against him with twenty thousand?
 Or else, while the other is yet a
great way off, he sendeth an ambassage,
and desireth conditions of peace.
 So likewise, whosoever he be of you
that forsaketh not all that he hath,
he cannot be my disciple.
 Salt is good: but if the salt have
lost his savour, wherewith shall
it be seasoned?
 It is neither fit for the land,
nor yet for the dunghill; but men
cast it out. He that hath ears
to hear, let him hear.
May God richly and eternally bless you!
